The main feature of the courtyard was a fabulous bonsai topiary pine that had to be craned in over the completed buildings. The planting went extremely well and our team carried out the works so professionally that we were asked to locate all the decking to the courtyard as well.
One of the last buildings to be completed was castle court and we were tasked with the design and build of a communal garden in the central courtyard for exclusive use by the residents and office workers.
We took inspiration from the strong lines of the surrounding architecture and conceived a complementary geometric scheme.
At the heart of the design is a water feature consisting of six large slate squares laid on a level with a hardwood decking bridge and adjacent paving. Central planters retained by low walls extend and enhance the geometry while creating an abundance of seating opportunities.
